    clay media be reused?

  • Nicholas Murarik 1 year ago

    Very straight forward and to the point. I like the idea of the clay pellets. Do you reuse them?

    The disadvantage of hydroponics is that you will have to purchase "plant food" or nutrition and supplements that can be high-priced.

    You actually can build your backyard that won't need weeding, tilling or cultivating, the spreading of fertilizer or garden compost, with no watering or irrigating; all while your plants produce up to 10x the amount of vegetables than plants from a dirt garden.

    Hi Josh. Immersing the net pot depends on the plant and the system used. For the zucchini plant, we used a drip irrigation bucket system. The net pot is not immersed in the water. The solution is dripped into the bucket and over the roots. For lettuce and greens, we use a lettuce raft, and a portion of the net pot is immersed in the solution. Hope that helps. Thanks for watching, and best of luck in all your projects.

    Should the net be immersed in water?

    Hi Jamey Epperson. We did start the seeds indoors but they received natural sunlight from a solar tube and nearby window. If you need to use lights, we recommend T5 lighting, and adjust the height of the light as the seedlings grow. Hope this helps. Thanks for watching, and taking the time to comment. Best of luck in your projects.

    this is the best video I ever see about planting seed for the hydroponic

    Hello Aidan C. Fish do provide some powerful nutrients! We have a video playlist on setting up an aquaponics system, and the fish provide all the nutrients for the plants in the bed. Thanks for watching, and taking the time to comment. Best of luck in all your projects.

    My nutrients of choice are fish 🙂

    Rockwool provides a stable home for the seedlings. When transplanting to a hydroponic system, you lift the rockwool out of the seed tray and move the seedling to the system. Clay pebbles don't hold together so you'd be unable to move the seedling with the pebbles to the system. However, we at just az hydroponics are exploring various methods for starting seeds, and several include using a clay pellet bed. Keep watching for new episodes on starting seeds. Thanks, cesarsgarden, and good luck.

    can one just use clay pebbles and no rockwool? im going broke

  • Just Az.com productions 1 year ago

    Hello, mitjedi9. You could just soak the rockwool if you like. We live in the desert, so the solution evaporates quickly no matter what, and if we moisten just the rockwool, it's dry the next day. This video demonstrates methodology, so you should take into account all variables, such as air temp, humidity levels, even the pH of your starter water. Thanks for watching and taking the time to comment. Best of luck in all your projects.
